Cooper is the only chef from the Pee Dee Region selected by Gov. Nikki Haley for the inaugural team of South Carolina Chef Ambassadors. Chef Thomas obtained the Bachelor of Science degree in Food and Beverage Administration form the Johnson & Wales Culinary Program and the Bachelor of Arts in Communications from College of Charleston. His love of simple food with a “fancy” edge is evidence of his devotion to innovation and his joyful approach to food.
“I believe food should be fun! Good food makes every occasion a special event.”
As a child of restaurant owning Greek parents, her roots in the hospitality industry run deep and wide. Throughout high school and college, she helped run her parent's restaurant as was their expectation. After her years studying business at Francis Marion University, she knew that her talents and skills would be given the best chance to grow and be challenged in the industry that she already knew so well. She worked with the corporation Mellow Mushroom for 5 years in Columbia, S.C., Knoxville, T.N., and worked opening operations for the Florence store. Maria has been with Victors since its re-opening in May 2013. Despite her experience, she worked her way from the bottom, running food and clearing tables to serving, to bar tending, to management, and for the last 4 years being the AGM.
“My favorite quality about Victors is that we are a tight knit family that strives daily to be better for our guests.”
